Brest – Lyon preview: Latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Brest vs Lyon lineups.

Brest

Brest made it 3 wins in 5 rounds last weekend when able to edge Reims 2-1 away from home. Once again, excellent team effort and great contributions from the red-hot Del Castillo (3 goals and 2 assists) made the difference. 

With 10 points from 5 games Brest sit in second place and they are in a great mood right now. 

The influential Pereira Lage remains doubtful. Magnetti did pretty well in his absence last weekend and he could retain his starting role. Considering the good results Brest might keep their lineup the same. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Bizot (GK), Lala, Chardonnet, Brassier, Locko, Camara, Lees-Melou, Magnetti, Del Castillo, Satriano & Le Douaron

Lyon

Lyon’s struggles continued even after coach Blanc was sacked. Last weekend all that was achieved at home against the newly promoted Le Havre was the second 0-0 draw of the season. With 3 heavy defeats in their other games, Lyon sit in the bottom 3 and are still looking for their first win. 

Yet to score more than one goal in a game. At the same time despite keeping 2 clean sheets in their 2 draws conceded 10 in the other 3 matches. 

Right after the last match, Fabio Grosso was announced as the new head coach and he will be making his debut in charge now. Grosso is not expected to shake things too dramatically straight away. 

The team’s best centre-back Dejan Lovren is a long-term absentee and he is yet to play this season. Mata is also absent so the insecure Kumbedi has to start often right now. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lopes (GK), Kumbedi, Mata, Diomande, Tagliafico, Akouokou, Caqueret, Tolisso, Nuamah, Lacazette & Cherki

​Player to Watch: Alexander Lacazette

For Lyon to start winning their star striker Alexander Lacazette needs to start scoring. Lacazette had 29 goals in 34 matches last season. He already scored once this campaign but sat out two of the games suspended and his impact so far had been minimal. 

Lacazette is now back and raring to go so we expect him to lead the charge as Lyon aggressively look for their first 3 points.
